    Quoted from PC-Pin-NC:

    OK, since DanQ has been put on notice for this, I will jump in. From Mirriam Webster:
    ir·re·gard·less (nonstandard)
    : regardless
    Usage Discussion of IRREGARDLESS
    Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.

    He intentionally used the word because it would push his buttons.

    I have to settle for fold-up oval table.. if I had the room, I would LOVE a table like that!

    #3416 4 years ago
    Quoted from chuckwurt:

    Do you like yours? Where did you get it? I host a 30 man tournament every year, and I need three ten person tables that can fold up if possible.

    I do like mine. Got it on amazon when they had a free shipping deal. I think I only paid like 175 bucks with free shipping. Felt top, drink holders, and pretty sturdy. Still not anything like a nice wooden table, but it would be perfect for a tourney. I have about 8 games a year here so its perfect, as folded up it hides in the corner most of the time.

    #5634 3 years ago

    Those lights are awesome. I would want them if I had a ridiculously cool ceiling like that, but I wonder how they would look in my basement with a normal drop ceiling? Two things....where did you get them, and why did Brian have to ruin that video by jumping?

    #5649 3 years ago
    Quoted from sleazius:

    I used weather proof 24v LED strips in my Shadow line and use repeaters with a wall mounted controller to sync the whole lot - it wasn't cheap but the effect is cool. The only issue is where The Shadow line is directly over 4 pins, these machines are unplayable with the LEDs on.
    I'll put up a photo when it gets dark.

    Hobby Lobby Arcade sign with outdoor Xmas lights. used die to cut holes for leds. Might be able to make another but need to find a better way to hold the lights in, mine I hot glued them but was a mess. Thinking of using those plastic electrical snap lock collar like thingies. took a lot of time to cut out the metal for holes for the lights and where like 49 holes to cut with the die.


    That's a great idea, I have that sign hanging and now I think I'm gonna have to do this!

    Quoted from ramegoom:

    After having a couple of months under my belt of room usage, and moving a few machines around, I have the following observations:
    1. Keep pins separated by at least 15 in. in order to have access to the back box without disturbing the footprint.
    2. If you have any bowlers, you need to keep a distance apart from both the back wall and the right side; you will need to open the machines occasionally (hinged right) and access the rear of the back box.
    3. Overhead lighting is critical to the pinball areas. You need to avoid glare from the can lights which would be seen on the glass by the machine player. Keep the lighting at a steep angle to the glass and you will avoid that.
    4. I didn't finish the ceiling and am forever glad that I didn't. I have since put extra electrical outlets in various places to accommodate string LED lighting along the entire perimeter of the walls and those outlets, placed strategically, made life simple. Since I blacked out the ceiling, a quick flat black rattle-can touch up for electrical outlets and wiring, and you'd never notice them. I put the Ebay LED string lights up using those 16 color controllers, linked each power outlet with remote outlet controls from Amazon, and have currently settled on the lowest intensity blue lights all around. Way cool.
    5. Lack of carpet makes moving the machines around much easier. I went with a metallic floor surface, and have waxed it with "Cherry Wax" to give the gloss shine a shot in the arm. Cleanup is a snap using a dusting mop. And, mopping the floor near the outside entrance is easy and effective. Spill a glass of wine, no problem. After two former carpeted game rooms, I can say I'd never recommend carpeting again. Polished or coated concrete is the only way to go.
    6. I was concerned about lack of ceiling insulation and potential noise, but it turned out well. The overall noise from pins, bowlers, arcade machines and slot machines turns out to be a great mix of ambiance, and you can still hear the TVs over it all.
    7. The heating system really doesn't get much use. With all machines in operation, total heat generated warms the room nicely. I'll probably be complaining about it this summer, but that's what air conditioning is all about.
    8. I added several outlets at 6 ft. off the floor for neon signs, so no cords are visible. That was a good move, but I kind of wish I installed more of them. Placement of neons can be convenient if you have more outlets to choose from. No real downside to too many outlets.
    9. I installed a small angle-shaped "Prize Cage" and so glad I did. Lots of kid stuff in the room, and the cage does the trick. Loaded with cotton candy, mini Chinese gumball machines and small toys, the kids have a memorable visit there. They trade tickets won by the skee ball machine for prizes. The crane game and skee ball keep kids in their own little world. And, all the tokens for multiple slots are stored there.
    It's been a fun project so far.


    1. If I had room to space games, I would agree, however moving a game once in a while to access another for repair is worth it to me to accommodate an extra game in the room

    5. I would never have a game room without carpeting. Spending hours at a time on your feet on concrete is miserable IMO. So much nicer to have some padding on the entire floor rather than a mat to perch on while playing.

    10. You have a beautiful gameroom. Awesome to have a gynormous space like that and it is set up beautifully

    Quoted from rcbrown316:

    current collection. the wall of 5 classic bally's and sterns are all my restorations minus the black knight I sold. also added my first arcade. ultimate arcade 2. I like it. it feels almost like the real deal on a bunch of the games. the games are starting to creep into the pool table area. we never play pool. If I have a party or something I can move some pins out but parties require interaction with large groups of humans. not real appealing lol...


    #7107 2 years ago
    Quoted from Deaconblooze:

    I don't look down on those people, but I do wonder why someone would choose an electronic board (the full uprights are quite expensive) when a good bristle board will run you $60. A simple wall mounted cork/bristle board also takes up practically no space, and when placed on an exterior wall is really quite quiet. Some people worry that steel tip darts are too dangerous, but how many times have you been hit with a plastic tip dart? You just need to be the slightest bit careful, and make sure you leave darts out of the reach of children.
    The sound (a nice muted thud) and "feel" of a dart landing into a bristle board is infinitely more satisfying to me than the clank of a plastic dart finding it's way into a hole on an electronic board.
    I don't play a lot of darts, but I'm always happy it's there when I feel like throwing a few rounds. I'm always surprised more people don't have them. It's probably one of the cheapest hobbies I've ever gotten involved in. All of the costs are up front, nothing is ever down for maintenance, and even the best of equipment is only going to cost you around $100.

    The man is passionate about darts.

    #7168 2 years ago

    They are called crazy lights. If you google it they come in kits with the correct amount of strips four your room size and the proper amount of power supplies, which are added in-line along the way. The effects work as if they are one continuous strip, and worth the price over individual strips that don't sync up.

    Wow, nice room! I dunno, as much as I love cramming pins in..... That dartboard makes good use of space that might be too hot for a pin if that fireplace is used...unless it's just the angle. Man, I would love a nice fireplace like that, beautiful.

    Wow. Thank you everyone for your complements. We had to leave house for 6 months due to water damage. I could only take 1 of my 8 pins bc we had to go to hotel and then a rental. I found a grail pin and bought it. Pinsider quiting hobby after 30 years. Bought the Indy, then MM, and CC from same guy. Ended up with lineup which I dreamt of. Went from 8 to 6 but these are my dream pins. Bought the others from other pinsiders for what I felt was fair pricing. Hard to find guys selling great machines where I live for fair prices. I intend to sell a few after granddaughter graduates high school in the same spirit which others did for me in this community. I am very appreciative of the guys who sold me their machines and intend to sell back to this group so others can enjoy these great games. Which is good news. Bad news is she's in 3rd grade. So I get to enjoy until then. Thanks everyone for the comments. There is a lot of good people here who share a lot of good information and I'm very thankful of that.

    Love Godard

    Quoted from LynnInDenver:

    Go ahead and pick it up. Do be careful of local laws on it, though; here in Colorado, for instance, individuals are only allowed to own pre-1984 slot machines (basically old physical reel types, the exception for "vintage collectors"), the idea being that it eliminates the defense of "it's my private collection" when they go after illegal gambling operations. Some states don't have any restrictions, and a few states ban private ownership completely.
    It doesn't mean they'll come knocking, but it is something to keep in mind, particularly when you have regular gaming parties.

    It's a brownstone (row house), so we only have 2 walls that have outside exposure. The thing was built in the 1870's. That cellar was a dirty 6 foot high space barely capable of dry storage. When they said they could make it a liveable floor, that meant I could have a game room. They swear it's going to be waterproof. We don't ask a lot of questions. We do write a lot of checks.

    Quoted from jorge5240:

    We have a lot of parties so I figured I give a list of what gets played by different demographics and most in general.
    1 Pac-Man battle royale. This was a great buy. Kids love it, not intimidating, great drinking game. If you have the room it is a great purchase.
    2 terminator salvation kids love it easy to play. Is repetitive but for parties a big hit.
    3 moto GP my kids love it. It is probably second favorite to Pac-Man right now. Adult males seem to love it. Want a second one to race.
    4 skeeball easy and can play a quick game. Gets lots of play.
    5 claw machine- my dad laughed at me when I bought this but a huge hit. We let the kids win as many prizes as possible and then let them each take one home.
    6 slot machines- older people love the slots. Like crack to them. My wife is a pretty big fan as well.
    7. Poker table- used to get hundreds of hours of play. Sadly had kids and my games have dried up. Miss this one
    Things that I thought get more play-
    Mario carts. They do alright but kids sometimes can’t reach the pedals.
    Bubble hockey just got it but takes some skill and intimidating to some.
    Big buck hunter- great game. I love it but just not easy to walk up and play. Doesn’t get the play I thought it would. Have zombies which you think would be a big hit.
    Finally and unfortunately pinball. If I don’t have a group of middle aged dudes over the odds out I will have a bunch four player games started that are never finished. I love pins and they are for me. But for our parties not the biggest hits.
    On the list once I get more spaces-
    DDR- wife wants one bad
    Jurassic Park arcade- whole family wants one
    Battle pod. This is mad dad’s baby. I know it is linear but this is what the man wants.
    Dart machine- I want one because I like drinking games but my wife is scared the kids will kill themselves
    Whac a mole- this for the kids. Think they would love it.

    Don't blame yer kids..... I have two kids and never stopped having poker games. It's good to have a little adult time too

    Oddly, the snow is minimal. Even compared to living in the Chicago area. It's one of northern Colorado's best kept secrets.
    It's the sun; they rarely even plow snow here because the sun takes it away. And no salt, unlike IL.
    Now, western Colorado is a different story. In Vail they get several feet of snow - and they're thrilled if they get three feet overnight. All about skiing.

    Lived in summit county back in the early 90s(Dillon). First Halloween there we got about four feet of snow
